Girls Road Trip!

June 23, 2013

Last week my mom, sisters, and I embarked on an epic journey. It wasn't just a journey to Charlotte, North Carolina, but a journey into our past. We were headed to a concert that could've as easily been performed in the 90's as now. We witnessed this:


And I must say, we had such a great time! Hannah drove from Nashville to join us and it was the first time I had seen her since I'd been back in the States. It was so good to hug and laugh with my sister.


You have no idea how obsessed we were with New Kids on the Block when we were kids. We would put together hour-long shows for our parents, and not just the 3 girls, all 5 of us kids would participate! Don't let the boys tell you any different. Our sets included dining room chairs covered with blankets that we could pop out from behind during climactic moments of our show. It was quite the performance. We even have videos of these shows (though those will, for now, remain private). Hannah was probably three years old and was singing lyrics like "love the way you turn me on". Hilarious.

We had full sized posters in our room (which I might have occasionally kissed) along with other random merchandise. I swear someone is super rich off all the New Kids on the Block crap they sold to young girls back in the day. Amazingly we still had a few things left and decided we had to take them to the concert. Hannah and I had Jordan Knight huge buttons and Leah still fit in a shirt she had made when she was about 12 years old! 


Yes, that is her and Jordan Knight on that shirt. I have one too, but considering I was 8, that sucker definitely did not fit me anymore. But for your viewing pleasure, this is what it looks like: 


And yes, that is during my mullet days. Ahhh memories. 

I was also a huge fan of Boyz II Men. And I must say, they were the highlight of the night for me. Their harmony is still amazing and the songs are classic! The night overall was so much fun. We danced and sang our little hearts out and it made it that much better to spend it with my mom and sisters. We spent the night in a hotel though we didn't get any sleep because we are party animals! Actually, because my mom snores (love you mom)! At one point during a really breathy snoring moment I commented to Leah, "She sounds like Darth Vader" to which she responded, "I am your faaaather" and we couldn't stop giggling about it. The lack of sleep might have had something to do with that.

Anyway, it was a great, though short, trip. Now it's time to find the next girl's trip concert!
